Erasmus Mundus MA Euroculture:
Society, politics and culture in a global context

Intensive Programme (IP) and Yearly Topic

Between the second and third Euroculture semesters an Intensive Programme (IP) of about ten days takes place. The location of the IP rotates around the parter universities. All students, staff members and guest professors from the universities of the Euroculture Network come together for the IP.

The students have the chance to meet and exchange experiences with their fellow students from the other universities as well as with the other staff members. Representatives from our international partner universities also attend the IP.

During the IP, all students are required to present their IP paper to a group of fellow students. Beyond the presentations, the IP also offers various possibilities to engage with the yearly topic. The Programme for the IP includes group work, public lectures, roundtable discussions, seminars as well as workshops with experts. The IP also offers the chance to participate in at least one excursion and other shared free time activities.
